This story is amazing. Painful in places because of the nature of the story, it is so real, visual, tragic, and gives the reader an inside view of war. This is a classic I read in little time because it was so hard to set down. It's about some young German men who are friends right out of school, and who enlist together, are assigned together and enter WWI together. The reader is taken through the war's horrors with them, and is permitted into their personal thoughts and perspectives of a war they were eager to participate in but grew to hate. It seemed to them pointless to be out there killing other young men they didn't even know, and who likely didn't want to be there shooting at each other anymore than they did.

I am no war buff. History is my favorite subject–– but accounts of actual war tend to bore me and I prefer researching the causes, etc. This is how I have always felt. My father insisted I read this book when I was in my early teens and I absolutely loved it. I read it again as a senior for a research paper on WWI and fell even more in love. So much of the novel smacks you in the face, it is so gripping, so real. I really believe everyone should read this to at least get an idea of what the sentiment was towards the first world war.
